Ingredients

Ingredients For Jar:

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegan sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Items Needed:

  • 1 liter jar (or 1 quart)

Ingredients For Gift Recipient

  • 3/4 cup softened vegan butter
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup plant-based milk (or water)

Instructions

Instructions For Gift Giver:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and salt together. Add contents carefully to bottom of jar (a funnel can be used for easy pouring). Pack down each layer gently with the back of a spoon.
  • Gently pour the white sugar on top as evenly as possible.
  • Add brown sugar and cinnamon on top.
  • Pour rolled oats on top.
  • Pour a layer or cranberries and then the chocolate chips.
  • Close jar and dress up with some ribbon. Tie on a name tag and write the baking ingredients & instructions on back.

Instructions For Gift Recipient:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pour the jar contents into a large bowl and combine well. Set aside
  • In a medium bowl, cream the butter, vanilla and milk together until smooth.
  • Add the butter mixture to the large bowl and combine until a dough is formed. Dough will be slightly sticky & slightly crumbly. If dough is too crumbly, add 1-2 teaspoons of milk & combine.
  • Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, and place onto baking sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes, or until edges are light golden brown. Don't over cook. They will look slightly undercooked on top & that's normal. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy right away or store in air tight container.
